Project title: “Underpass camp practice field”
It is a service that develops a campsite under the elevated tracks and creates an opportunity for those who feel that camping is a hurdle to take the first step. The camping market is expanding due to the recent outdoor boom and the backing of the corona crisis. However, there are many issues for those who try camping for the first time, such as lack of knowledge about camping, possession and handling of gear, and dealing with rainy weather. We aim to develop a service that allows you to easily learn about camping by removing the hurdles one by one. [Image 4

New Business Proposal In-house Competition “Todai” Outline
JR East Urban Development celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019, and JR East Urban Development celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019, and started as a project born from “the next 30 years created by employee ideas” in the “30th anniversary project”.
The “lighthouse” has the meaning of a “foundation” that will remain unchanged forever, and a “point of light” that sets the destination to shine according to social conditions and management policies.
